Move over CIF, DCM and Out of Bounds.
You’ve heard of comedy in threes? Try a trio of improv festivals…all in Toronto.
This year marks the first annual Big City Improv Festival at Comedy Bar, October 15 – 20. Impatient Theatre Co’s Toronto Improv Festival meanwhile, runs from October 22 – 28.
That leaves one day in between.
It was a day of laughterlessness that Standards & Practices couldn’t let go unfilled. And so the October 21st Greater Toronto Improv Festival was born.
According to their facebook page, this year marks the 100th anniversary of the festival. While information has been cryptic until now, they just announced that improv heavy hitters Mantown and Falcon Powder will be performing. What started as a joke just got real, yo.
Some people are already calling it Toronto’s second-best improv festival. Only time will tell.
“The festival between festivals” takes place at Unit 102 on – you guessed it – Sunday, October 21st.
We can’t wait.
Second best? Oh, I’m thinking BEST, baby! Can’t wait.
What could be better than being the meat in an improv festival sandwich? Or at least the peanut butter. : )
